So he mightn’t be doing "Michael vs Pinhead" now, but at least horror fans will be happy to know that Clive Barker is indeed doing something. According to Variety, Barker is returning to the director’s chair after an eight-year bsence, signing to helm Universal’s horror film "Tortured Souls". For the uninitiated, Tortured Souls is Barker’s own line of action figures, which debuted at the International Toy Fair in Gotham in February 2001.

Each of the six grisly Tortured Souls – Talisac, Lucidique, Scythe-Meister, Agonistes, Mongroid and Venal Anatomica – was sold with a chapter of an original Barker-penned storyline. The combined chapters form a novella outlining the Souls’ origin. For the big screen adaptation, the storyline centers on a man who decides he wants to be rid of his wife in favor of a more interesting life. The man "exchanges" his wife for a demon goddess from another world, throwing her into a shadowy world of monsters – one from which she must escape and return to his everyday world to rescue their child and vanquish the demon.

Todd McFarlane will consult on the script and produce as well.
